McDonalds. Love it, or hate it…. Mike Noori bet that he could eat $1,000 worth of McDonalds in 36 hours. Noori is getting 5-1 odds from Mike O'Malley and at least $200,000 is on the line. The eating prop bet will go down in Arizona during the annual Matt Savage golf tournament. Noori decided that he's going to eat $500 worth of apple slices, but he cannot eat no more than $200 in salads. So, that's still $300 worth of normal McDs stuff... burgers, McNuggets, and fries... he has to eat within 36 hours. Noori also has to wear a Hamburglar costume while playing two rounds of golf. Noori is about to get McFamous.


Prop bets. We love them. Especially ones involving health risk and consuming massive amounts of food. And McDonalds? It's nasty. I avoid it at all costs knowing that every once in a while traveling, I'm stuck eating at McD's. I'm a huge fan of Shake Shack and In N Out Burger, so there's no reason to ever eat McDs. Unless... you want to bet on it.

Mike Noori is putting his life and cholesterol on the line later this month during the 2017 Matt Savage Golf Tournament in Arizona. Noori will attempt to eat $1,000 worth of McDonalds menus items within a 36-hour period and drinks don't count. During that time span, Noori will also play two rounds of golf and wearing a Hamburglar costume.

According to a Tweet from last week, @SavagePoker, "McNoori is getting 5-1 on $1,000 in 36 hours, drinks not included and only $200 in salads allowed."

Mike O'Malley a.k.a. @rzitup offered Noori 5-1 odds and so far there's at least $200K in side bets on it and it might already have passed $250K by the time you're reading this. Like most absurd prop bets in the poker world, there's going to be tons of side action on this.

Heck, I already made three bets with degen friends while writing this sentence.... umm, hold a sec... make that four bets. Everyone wants action on this insanely crazy McD $1K food bet.

Prop betting madness. I'm sure McD's PR is not loving this wager.

The word on the street is that Mike Noori is going to get crushed. There's no way a normal-sized human and non-competitive eater can consume $1,000 worth of assorted McDonalds items within a 36-hour period. I'm sure that's an easy task for pro eaters like Joey Chestnut and Siberian Vladmir the Iron Stomach.

Jimmy Fricke, Vegas pro and gourmand, crunched the numbers and tweeted his take on the bet… “This is impossible. If he eats the lowest calorie/dollar food available (southwest grilled chicken salad) this is still 66,000 calories.”

66K calories? The average American male consumes 2.5K to 3K a day. To put that in perspective, Noori has to chow down on three weeks worth of food inside of a day and a half. The Super Size Me guy, Morgan Spurlock, crushed approximately 6,000 calories per day during the month-long shooting of his documentary. By the end of the film, Spurlock couldn't get it up and had his cholesterol skyrocket. He got fat and don't even get me started about what 30-days of McDs did to his wiener.

Mike "McNoori" Noori

Noori tweeted that he will eat at least $500 worth of apple slices. Noori has a $200 cap on salads, which means that's $300 in normal items on the line and $50 in burgers.

Too bad he's not eating $1,000 worth of Big Macs or McNuggets. That'd be a real badass challenge. Or $500 worth of McNuggets and $500 worth in Quarter Pounders with Cheese… or as they say in Europe… a Royale with Cheese.

The 1K McD's prop bet originally got set at 24 hours, but the overall duration got bumped to 36 hours to accommodate sleep and golf. O'Malley hammered out the details within a week. There's plenty of stipulations.

Mike O'Malley explained the origins and details of the 1K McDs bet on the Follow the Money show. O'Malley said that Noori cannot use a blender, add/remove things from an item, nor can he force-puke. Noori can vomit if it's a natural reaction to his body rejecting all that crap! I'm assuming he's going to blow chunks on the golf course in that scorching Arizona sun.

This prop betting and eating smorgasbord will be videotaped and probably live streamed and Instagramed. Stay tuned for the Matt Savage annual golf tournament in Arizona, which occurs on May 20-21.
